52.8 million people watched the first debate between senator john mccain and then senator obama four years ago. 80% of the country's adults reported watching at least some of the presidential debates in 2008. >>> enough of the real news, let's huddle up around the water cooler to get you ready for the rumble in the rockies. aides to president obama said he's focusing on looking calm. romney's team says it is loading up the candidate with zingers, one-liners aim the at the president. the campaign told "the new york times" last week, quote, mr. romney's team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he's memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. the zinger strategy apparently includes luring president obama into appearing smug or evasive in his responses, especially on questions of the economy. this is where jimmy fallon comes in. >> tomorrow is the first of three debates between myself and president obama. i'm looking forward to having a serious conversation with my opponent about the issues. i've always pre
buried for the last four years during which president obama was in the white house while campaigning in iowa. paul ryan did not miss the opportunity to seize on biden's choice of words. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. of course the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> the romney campaign also chimed in on twitter writing agree with joe biden. the middle class has been buried the last four years which is why we need a change in november, #can'tafford4more. >>> later that today in asheville, north carolina vice president biden clarified that the middle class was buried by the policies that romney and ryan supported. see if you're convinced by that recovery. >>> also yesterday, a video was relesioned by the daily caller, featuring then senator barack obama speaking to a group of african-american religious leaders in 2007. they are b
township the clash that will help decide whether he gets another four years, president obama stayed mum. leaving the heavy lifting yet again today to former president bill clinton in new hampshire, who made the case this is a choice about the next four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody can fix this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run. >> reporter: the president made the opposite case in 2009. vowing to get the economy fixed in three years or this would be in his words a one-term proposition. which is why senator marco rubio told fox he believes the president will be vulnerable tonight if romney focuses on this point. >> we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we can barely aforfour more months. if we have four more years of president obama we can't wait four years for the economy to start growing. >> reporter: that may be resonating as the race tightening again in latest nbc news, "wall street journal" poll. romney is trailing by three points, within the margin of error. 46% o
romney can make the case that there will be no change in the next four years because obama didn't deliver the change he promised four years ago, that he said he would lower the unemployment rate to 5.6%, but we've now had our 43rd month of above 8% unemployment. he said that family incomes would go up, but they've gone down $4,000 under his watch. he said that bush was unpatriotic for adding four trillion to the debt over eight years, he's added five trillion over just four years. so he needs -- americans don't want to have more of the same, and obama really tonight has to show how his second term would be different than the first instead of this forward stuff that we've been hearing from him. megyn: you know, joe, i took a look at those fox news polls, and marc's right, the overwhelming majority of americans want change, they don't want to stay the course, but the question is, who does that mean? whose policies do hay want to change? it's something like 95% of republicans want to change course, 51% of democrats and 77% of independents, but when you drill even deeper and ask, well, who's
a clear admission that the middle class buried these last four years. and the obama years, that would be. he later tried to walk the statement back, saying the middle class was buried by policies supported by mitt romney and paul ryan. joining us now is congressman peter welsh, who joins us frequently on "varney & company." welcome back, good to see you. >> good to be here. i'm sure we're going to agree that the middle class has indeed been buried. income down about $4,000 in the the last four years for middle america. i say it's because of the pills of stimulus, a massive government spending, and heavy regulation simply has not produced a robust economy which would raise the middle glass. it's subdued the middle class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four
obama has a leg to stand on when it comes to entitlements. in the last four years he created a giant new entitlement that will put the onerous taxes on the middle class. i think he has to keep president obama on defense all night. i've talked to a lot of people and they say the entire debate is about romney. romney needs to play to win. while president obama needs to play not to lose. as long as he can keep him on defense, which he can. the facts are on romney's side. i talked to a senior advisor and just saw the candidate, he is calm and in great spirits ready to go. >> bob: that is what they always say before debates. if you abandon your own vice president medicare proposals? >> dana: they answered that. >> bob: how so? >> andrea: i don't think he will let himself get trapped in the details, bob. he will take it to the president. the facts are on his side. all he has to do is bring up the promises that president obama made. all the promises that he hasn't kept. boston you want to be president, you have to come up with details, too. >> what about skating through on promising to bring do
and danielle nottingham. >> derek, tonight's debate will be on domestic issues. president obama will make his case for the next four years and mitt romney will be more specific about his plans for the country. when mitt romney and president obama meet on this stage for their first debate, more than 50 million viewers are expected to tune in. greg is an important member of that audience. he is an undecided voter. >> i think they are talking directly to me. >> wayland's top issue, the economy. >> that's going to be the thing for me. someone that comes forward with a cohesive plan for america and where america fits into that. >> both candidates have spent hours rehearsing for this moment. they'll face each other for 90 minutes. president obama has to avoid any major missteps and explain to voters why unemployment is so high and the economic recovery so slow. >> i think what you'll hear the president do tonight is have a conversation directly with the american people about where we have been over the past four years and what we have to continue to do moving forward to strengthe
another four years of status quo that president obama is offering or do i want to set the country on a new course as it relates to job creation, a new course as it relates to the economy? >> sean hanity said last night he thinks this video is a bombshell. do you think it's a bombshell and will the romney campaign use it in television ads as the obama team has used that 47% video in television ads? >> i think that it was covered in 2007. i think a number of folks are going to continue to cover it today. how they cover it in that context, a lot of that is up to individual voters and whether they think it's relevant to the conversation we're having today. we believe, as a campaign -- i think governor romney believes what's most relevant are the president's policies and how they're affecting the economy today, how they're affecting people's bottom line, how they're affecting household incomes. that's a much more relevant debate that we're going to focus on as a campaign. >> kevin, if they do not see a new romney, will they see a romney offering specifics as to deductions that he might prefer i
admits that in the last four years, that's the obama years, the middle class has been buried. highest price of gasoline in the history. hits the middle class. the unemployment rate hits the middle class. the debt being piled up, hits the middle class. but then he goes on to say something which is frankly nutty. no republican is proposing a tax increase in the middle class. none, zero. there are no proposals to raise taxes on the middle class. who is proposing to raise taxes? obama? who has a whole range of tax increases in obamacare? obam a. biden pivots and charges the republicans with something totally false, after having atd mitted that in the time he was vice-president, the middle class was buried. i agree with paul ryan's characterization. buried by tax, buried by unemployment and buried by reg iewdle, it's buried by debt and a variety of government actions, under obama and biden. i am sure that he wishes he hadn't said it. but joe biden in that case, was sharing an insight into what's happened. >> greta: two-part question. what is the one question president obama doesn't want to
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
marks. telling reporters the middle-class has been buried over the last four years not even aware obama was leading the nation and robert gibbs said he was referring to damage the bush had caused. >> we had eight years of terrific decisions, wall street rate teeing its own rules that took place four years ago of which we had to dig out from each day. be clear. the middle-class was buried for a lot longer than we were dealing with bad economic decisions. lou: stephanie cutter contradicted trying to spin them out of the last four years telling another network we're absolutely not we made our predecessors by any means. three days after david axelrod and senior advisor told different stories of what the president knew of the terrorist attack in benghazi. less than 24 hours the president is in a debate with himself. of the daily caller uncovers a tape of senator obama june 2007 engaging in defense of class warfare rhetoric to a group of black ministers. take a look at his controversial remarks from his 2007 speech side-by-side with remarks less than one year later. >> special shout out to my
for the next four years they will be looking at this person. they know what obama is like. they know many people support him. at this point in time they don't know enough about romney and the specifics on his vision. he needs to lay some of that out. bill: in terms of specifics, maybe you hang one fact out there. i'm going to take the unemployment rate and do this with it. >> you have to be factual on those things. he laid out a tax plan without any details, what does that mean? bill: do you find most guys cheer their guy and boot other one? >> usually debates reinforce the side you are on. you look for the good points. center few people are totally neutral going in and it's not entertaining, it's educational. bill: that contradicts the point about saying maybe in the case of governor romney. there is a sliver of people saying i don't know enough about this guy. if he convinces me, he might get my vote. >> i think that's important. if the election were held by the polls he's a few points behind. he needs the debates to change the dynamics where people say this is a down to the wire race.
for four out of five president bush's budget. >> senator obama. i'm not president bush. if you wanted to run against president bush you should have run four years ago. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan. [ male announcer ] if you're eligible for medicare, you may know it only covers about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. call now and find out about an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement plans, it helps pick up some of what medicare doesn't pay. and could save you thousands in out-of-pocket costs. to me, relationships matter. i've been with my doctor for 12 years. now i know i'll be able to stick with him. [ male announcer ] with these types of plans, you'll be able to visit any doctor or hospital that accepts medicare patients. plus, there are no networks, and you never need a referral to see a spec
four more years of that stuff. >> weigh can't afford for more years of barak obama. we can barely afford four more months. we can't wait four years for our economy to start growing. we can't wait four years for people to find jobs or our houses to be worth what we paid for them. we can't wait four years for our kids to find job when is they graduate college. we can't wait for four more years. we can't afford it. >> steve: you won't hear that on the evening news. what the media aren't telling you about the economy. we continue the conversation with our panel. brand-new "wall street journal" poll comes out this morning. it says 53% of the americans feel that we are on the wrong track. yet, you don't really hear that. you hear other media outlets talking about hey, happy days are here again. mallory, there is a lot of stuff and the main stream media we don't hear about the economy because it's not helpful to the president. >> no question about it. the lame stream media is not telling the truth about this enron-style kick the can down the road that the president is doing. i mean, he i
cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. memo wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first presidential debate -- >> wednesday, president obama and money in the first presidential debate, hosted by jim lehrer from "the newshour." follow our live coverage on c- span radio and online at c- span.org. >> they just tell you the news straight up. there's no ads. that is arguably the biggest reason. i am a firm believer that the c- span video archives are truly a gift to the american people. it is arguably one of the most historical -- i would say one of the most historical archives there are. i primarily watch the "washington journal," the house of representatives proceedings, and c-span2 for the u.s. senate. >> jake young watches c-span. c-span -- created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> 3 political cartoonist presented some of their favorite works over the past year during and even recently hosted by the newseum in washington. they talk ab
. president obama will be making his case for four more years and mitt romney trying to convince the country he is the better man for the job. now, right now it looks like voters need convincing on both sides because in a brand new cnn poll of polls it shows a very close race. the president maintaining a razor-thin three-point lead with a month to go at this point. our cnn political director mark preston is live from denver right in the middle of it all. mark, you have new details on what to expect tonight. >> well, john, yes. there's no arguing, this is the most important moment of this presidential debate. in just a few hours as you said, mitt romney, barack obama squaring off here in denver. it will be a 90-minute debate. it will cover six different segments. most of it, though, john, is going to be on the economy. there's going to be three segments to focus on the economy. one segment on foreign policy. one segment on the role of governing and one segment on the role of government in people's lives, john. so how this is going to be set up is that the candidates will be sitting at podiums
old, first of all obama now has a four year record, actually that romney should be focusing on and he should be talking completely about the economy. and if he wants to go back to some 4-year-old tape where obama said something and tried to convince americans that president obama is some sort of race monger. i think it would back fire. >> what if president obama and we believe he dual that leslie says you are trying to divide americans 47%. you don't believe they are worthy. it seems to me fairly powerful defense saying wait a minute. taking my remarks out of context. you said this about race. you said this about wealthy people. no, yes? is that a shield he should use? i don't think mitt romney should bring up anything with race. he should clarify 47% remark. i think because tonight is really about trying to get back some of that small lead that the president has and trying to close that gap in the polls that the president is leading by right now. that is what mitt romney needs to accomplish tonight with the people watching. those that are already going to vote for mitt romney and tho
personally oppressed. [inaudible] i will give president obama another chance for another four years. as a huge voter, we have to pull together because if you are a minority, that is the only way to understand this. it is not easy being a minority in america host: it is a little hard to hear you. she feels like people have to pull together. guest: thanks so much for bringing this up. this is important to the millennial generation. it is the first year -- are summer research showed that young people are optimistic about their ability to band together as a group and have an impact on this country. there are a lot of ways that young people can come together and work with organizations who are out there like a generational alliance and league of young voters and reach out to young people of color and low income communities to give young people a voice together to have an impact on the issues they care about. host: this question of being jaded is different than what our last caller talked about. how much are the people you research feeling jaded? guest: it is important to step back from t
mitt romney will say 8.1% and the president will say 30 months of job growth. obama's construct will be inherited problem and with the policies in place need another four years. gerri: the backdrop is the 2007 video of candidate obama talking to black preacher saying essentially the federal government does not care about black americans. >> he has his facts wrong. president bush waived the stanford act 60 months for e emergency removal. $150 billion of katrina assistance. 20 billion on housing mississippi and the mexia had no real import -- reimbursement. from the state. to pockets that had the money had to be reimbursed. 19 million in construction for levies and 12 billion in reimbursement for public facilities. $31 million total. the requirements the state of mississippi and louisiana reimbursed 10 percent, not the city of new orleans. they had a $1 billion per year superstation surplus. normally that would collapse the finances so the government said put up your match for the levees but instead you could pay it over 30 years. he misstated the facts deliberately to say they we
four years have been quote buried. we agree. stop digging bile electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >>> the obama campaign is calling that an out of context attack. the numbers they say mr. biden buried line including that that reflect high unemployment rising debt and smaller paychecks over the last four years. >> newt gingrich is talking about. >> newt beginnihe went on the r what he has to do. >>> it is a clear-cut situation. romney has to be clear and factual and stick to his grounds. he has to recognize he's up against the incumbent president of the united states. rom hee will t romney will try r call him. romney is going to have to communicate past layer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that i think he could have a very good night and you could see a very good race by thursday morning. >> later in the show you are going to hear from romney's former debate coach who is with him during the primary. oo tonight's debate is exactly what we would like to hear from you on today. what would you like to hear from the candidates tonight? send
cain four years ago. >> he did. i spent more time with rob portman as obama than as rob po portman, the senator we all know. both men have a monumental undertaking for the first debate. one of them has to come off as nicer and less arrogant than he really is. and the other one has to come across as more normal and less awkward than he is. >> you talk about president obama coming off as more nicer and less arrogant. he does get irritable in the debates. his team is prepping him for to stay more patient. >> right. think about that for a second. they're asking both men to be someone they're not. that's what makes the debate so dramatic. really, what we're all waiting for, what we're watching for, is the moment when the real man breaks out. >> but more pressure on mitt romney in this debate. if you could say, what is his number one goal for this debate, it is? >> romney needs to have a moment like what some of us saw this week, when bill clinton introduced him, where he had this self-deprecating, normal moment, where his humanity shows through. he needs to do the impossible. he needs t

an editorial out that says what does mr. obama offer the jobless that makes them hopeful about the next four years than the previous four? we don't know. >> a tough series of questions from "the washington post." your response. >> i don't think you'll hear platitudes from the president. you're going to hear specific plans. he's talked about building the economy from the middle class out and investing in energy and education. he's got a specific plan to do it. he set the goal of creating a million manufacturing jobs and laid out a plan how to do it to end tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. he has a plan to reduce the cost of college tuition and further reduce our dependence on foreign oil because of the plans he's implemented we're at a 16-year low. i think you'll see him delve into those details tonight. we'll leave the zingers to the saturday night li"saturday nig t re-enactment and mitt romney. >> i have not said zinger and now i have. is that going to be enough for the american public? >> no. it's not actually. you know, all due respect to what's going on in chicago but the
is walking away from and at least with president obama, i mean we've got obama care, we've got the jobs act, we've got some actual ideas that he has put on the table, things he has done in the last four years to say, we can see what your philosophy is. we can see what specificity. romney won't even give you that. >> the wall of obfuscation, brick by brick. mark halperin, we haven't talked about the coverage of "time," the debate special and we're not trying to depress anybody here but the thesis here written by one of our friends to the show, michael sherry, he talks about how voters are just increasingly less demanding of the truth, that political fibs we can get away with them and things like details on tax plans doesn't really matter to the american public anymore. your thoughts on that? >> it's a great cover, we put it out a day early in part so people could look at the debate through the prism. it is -- there are lots of problems with our politics and political media culture and we can't solve all of them and some of these things have been around forever. it is true even with more medi
with barack obama and voted for him four years ago. they don't know if they want to hire the other guy. >> maybe how much give and take there is and truth telling that goes on between moderator and candidate. does he have it? does he get it? do i still like him or like this guy? so many people are undecided. really small number, maybe 1/3 undecided. >> at the end of the day that's the biggest challenge for mitt romney and why he has to do so well in this first debate because fewer undecideds than in 1980 and '96. the early voting has begun and begun in ohio and iowa. it has begun across america. this isn't like 1980. when i talk about on friday it was 50-49. i ended up winning four days later 62% to 38%. you can do that swing even in '94. you can't do it now. >> reagan is campaigning in new york in october something unheard of today. carter is campaigning in california and texas in october, something unheard of today. so it was a far more fluid situation then than it is now. >> it won't be this late again next time. they will have this debate in september. it doesn't make sense to have
off than we were four years ago. therefore romney -- a third says they're no better. obama is winning among those no better by 20 points. which means romney is ultimately failing people who are ambivalent about obama. that was my question for him. romney has spent so much time trying to convince people the last four years are a failure. isn't the larger task for him in this debate to convince him that he would produce a better outcome over the next four years than the president? >> congressman? i'm not sure if you heard that with all of our infighting. he's like, are they done yet? i'll translate for you, sir. you heard what he said. which is you have to move away from the economy's failing to this is what i'm going to do for you. >> yes. he has to create in the debate an image that he can do a better job overall as leader of the united states. that is his challenge. it's a bigger issue than specifics. it's how he's -- the impression that he gives after that debate, what the american viewer thinks and whether it's going to be an upset, whether he upsets the person that's in charge who
on the middle-class that has been buried the last four years. >> reporter: republicans called it a stunning admission that the middle-class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course the middle-class has been buried, buried by regulations, buried by taxes, buried by borrowing, they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, a politics-free day for contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle. president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aide say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to appear relatable and offer specifics on his agenda. >> he has to find something more than just discussing how bad the economy is or blaming the president for how much the economy continues to struggle. >> report
job, and the economy in my opinion is still the same as it was four years ago. >>> what's effective about that is that what governor romney has to do is persuade people who voted for president obama that they shouldn't vote for him again. if the attack is strong on his competence or strong on some facet of his leadership, the danger is people hunker down and defend their original vote. this situates the voter where the voter is right now, it says, "we license you to reject the incumbent." it's an ad that says, "let's make this a referendum. >> what about the pro-obama ad? what's the most effective ad they've run that is believable? >> i think the most effective ad that they have is on the air right now. it's capturing a small segment of the statement that governor romney made behind closed doors, not realized he was being taped, about the 47%. and it puts pictures of people who fall into that 47% on the screen and basically suggests that governor romney doesn't want to represent you and you and you. >>> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax, including veterans,
